Famed fashion designer Vivienne Tam made her fray into the world of interior designing by designing a minimalist suite at Hotel Icon, Hong Kong. Located in Tsim Sha Tsui East, the boutique hotel is owned by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. A graduate from the university, Tam immediately snapped up the opportunity as she felt it was her chance to give back to her educational institute. Sprawling over 861 square feet, the suite reflects her East-meets-West aesthetic and vivid color palette. In fact, the suite is inspired by Tam’s own apartment in New York and features similar furniture, wood, marble bathroom, etc. A curvy red sofa by the Bouroullec brothers complements a Japanese cherry wood table and welcomes the guest into this beautiful space. Tam has even added her own personal touches to this suite.
There is a pink porcelain plaque which she found in a Shanghai market and a series of her own art installations. There is also a portrait made of Swarovski Elements of ‘Opera Girl,’ the character she created for her 2011 accessories line, hanging in the bedroom.
While the suite is already opened to the public, Tam is currently working on an installation titled “Flying Clouds,” composed of fragments of cloth for the bedroom.
Tam hopes this project is the beginning of her journey to realizing her dream of developing Vivienne Tam Home as a brand one day.
